authorities say they foiled a plot by a man linked to the iranian government to use mexican drug cartels to kill the saudi ambassador to the u.s. and to bomb the saudi embassy here in town. we've got some fascinating details on that story that just broke. >> and let me finish tonight with the case for a really big jobs bill. we started with how mitt romney is going to beat barack obama. michael steel is a former chairman to the republican national committee and now an msnbc political analyst and mark penn is a democratic strategist and former hillary clinton campaign strategist. mark, hillary's not running this time. i don't think. president obama is running for re-election. he has to make the case for a second term. he has to probably, we're just going to propose this now, beat mitt romney, the way it looks right now. romney's got some great many numbers. let me show you why we're proposing that. just came in from the new nbc news and the marrist poll up in iowa and in new hampshire. in the iowa caucuses, mitt romney leads among republicans, but herman cain is right behind him. ron paul
anger here that can spread throughout the country? author michael lewis joins us on to whether they can use that anger to change american hearts and minds. >>> and if you're like me and grew up in a time of racial tensions and riots, it's amazing and gratifying to see a country that has a democratic 6 african-american president and another african-american at the top now of the gop field. how far have we come on this weekend that we do dedicate the martin luther king jr. memorial here in washington? >>> and let me finish tonight with a call to action to those protesting on wall street. get something done. >>> we start with the rise of herman cain. david corn's an msnbc political analyst and "mother jones" magazine's washington bureau chief, and jonathan martin is senior political reporter for politico. gentleman, i want to know how this ends for this fellow, herman cain, who's come out of nowhere. you're chuckling, but let me raise a couple of questions here. i'm going to give you a number of questions, the scenario. this guy keeps going up. he's ahead now in south carolina. he's ahead
year. that'll do it for us. i am dylan ratigan and "hardball with chris matthews" is up right now. >>> so, how does obama beat romney? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, beating mitt. now it's herman cain who's leading in the polls, as the darling of the right. but the one constant hanging around with the republicans, mr. right now, if it's not mr. right. romney clobbers mr. obama in our new poll in new hampshire and is neck and neck with him in iowa, two states obama won in 2008. if obama's going to beat romney and win re-election to his second term in these very challenging times, he can't totally blame bush. he can't focus on the past. he's going to have to make a case for the future. can he do it? that's where we start tonight. plus, we've been talking about it for days here on "hardball," and now it's gone mainstream. can the democrats embrace the occupy wall street protesters? should they? if they jump in, as one person pointed out, what happens if the protesters start throwing garbage cans through the windows or w
a matter of discussion. pastor robert jeffress joins us at the top of the show. romney's religion has always been a potential achilles heel for him. the other candidates don't have to make an issue of it. they may well not want to. well, tonight, how religion could determine who wins the presidential nomination of the republican party. plus, with each passing day, those occupy wall street protests are gaining momentum. top republicans dismissed the demonstrators as mobs. we'll hear from both friend and foe, tonight. and is it possible that president obama isn't very good at politics? you know, the people, person-to-person kind. that's the question posed by a "washington post" reporter who says the president has a problem beyond the economy. people. he doesn't enjoy meeting with people, the story says, he endures them. it's an odd position for a president to be in. to put himself in. and let me finish tonight with my views on the matter of religion and public office. we start with religion in politics, and with me now is pastor robert jeffress of the first baptist church in dallas, tex
, except they were making money off of it. and people were very angry at us because they are not making the trading profits they used to make, and, yes, i'm sure newt does make some money off of it. >> what do you make of the republican party? you grew up in massachusetts and new jersey way before that. you know there used to be a clifford case republican party, a party of governor sargent and reasonable people. what happened to that? last night, i want you to start and look at this. here's rick perry who actually is a governor of one of the states, maybe a secessionist governor but a governor, and here he is talking about the revolutionary war. of course, massachusetts had much to do with it. here he is talking about when it was fought, not about when the earth was founded 5,000 years ago, according to these people, but when we fought our revolution, that part. let's listen. >> our founding fathers never meant for washington, d.c. to be the found t of all wisdom. as a matter of fact, they were very much afraid of that. it was actually the reason that we fought the revolution in the 16t
submits to sorting out the international law on the use of armed drones right now, it is putting the free world in jeopardy. dylan? >> applause -- if i had applause, there would be applause. i could not agree more emphatically. and very well spoken, very well put. >> thank you for letting me have my say. >> it was well said. thank you, imogen lloyd webber. that will do it for us. i'm dylan ratigan and "hardball's" up right now. >>> can you believe it? cain you believe it? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews down in washington. leading off tonight, are you serious? that's the question a lot of people are asking about herman cain. can you be serious if you call for an electrified fence on our mexican border, then say you were just kidding, then say you me want it. can you be serious if you propose shifting the tax burden from the wealthy down to the middle class and then down to the poor. can you be serious if you're not running a normal campaign for president? also, here's a story sure to anger some on the religious right. in fact, a lot of them. a leader o
? and the republican presidential candidate democrat seems to like the most, jon huntsman, joins us here tonight, right here, to play "hardball." >>> let me finish tonight with the iraq war that we never should have fought. >>> we start with today's dramatic announcement, however, that all american troops will be out of iraq by the end of this year. patrick murphy is the first iraq war veteran to serve in the u.s. congress. and today he's a candidate for attorney general of pennsylvania. and michael hirsch is with "national journal." thank you, gentleman, for joining us. let's take a look at the president's comments today, and they begin to dovetail from, we're getting out of iraq, and i wish you'd put these young men and women to work. here's the president making clear that jobs for veterans is priority number one. >> as we welcome home our newest veterans, we'll never stop working to give them and their families the care, the benefits, and the opportunities that they have earned. this includes enlisting our veterans in the greatest challenge that we now face as a nation, creating opportunities and jo
me have my say. >> it was well said. thank you, imogen lloyd webber. that will do it for us. i'm dylan ratigan and "hardball's" up right now. >>> can you believe it? cain you believe it? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews down in washington. leading off tonight, are you serious? that's the question a lot of people are asking about herman cain. can you be serious if you call for an electrified fence on our mexican border, then say you were just kidding, then say you me want it. can you be serious if you propose shifting the tax burden from the wealthy down to the middle class and then down to the poor. can you be serious if you're not running a normal campaign for president? also, here's a story sure to anger some on the religious right. in fact, a lot of them. a leader of the movement to, quote, cure homosexuality admits it doesn't work. the former head of, quote love and action, the country's largest ex-gay ministry joins us to say, i am what i am. and the occupy wall street momentum has energy and enthusiasm. they could play a big role in the presiden
moderates too. and a lot of people cheered when a u.s. drone took out anwar al awlaki, the american citizen who had joined al qaeda. but ron paul is one person asking if it's right to assassinate an america and deny him the right to a trial. we'll get to that tricky one. and let me finish tonight with this question, should president obama campaign from the left, as his base would like, or should he aim for the center? that's also going to be the subject of a very special live edition of "hardball" coming up two hours from now, 7:00 eastern, the great democratic debate. i'll be joined by eight guests, from both the left and from the center, who will debate the best way for the president to run and win a second four-year term. it's going to be quite exciting and i hope you'll join us at 7:00 eastern tonight. again, 7:00 eastern tonight, for the great democratic debate. we start right now with problems with rick perry's campaign, and they're serious. wayne slater writes for "the dallas morning news" and michael steele is an msnbc political analyst. again we're back to what i call the san andre
ex-es about get money out and that will do it for us today. i'm dylan ratigan. i'll do the same thing. up next, "hardball" right here on msnbc with ch >>> send out the clowns. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, clown show. that's what the republican field is amounting to. michele bachmann starts talking about the sign of the beast during a presidential debate. rick perry says the american revolution happened in the 16th century, and newt gingrich says chris dodd and barney frank should be imprisoned for writing legislation he disagrees with. no wonder mitt romney never, quote, loses a debate. how could he in this crowd? barney frank is here to deal with newt's bomb-throwing at the top of the show. also, mitt romney turns out to be the movie you see when the movie you wanted to see is sold out. as roberta flack and donny hathaway sang "where is the love." polls show romney treading water while republicans keep picking a new flavor of the month. plus, joe biden said today it won't happen. hillary clinton said today it wo
before. the people on the streets of libya, the people in the arab world wanted to see the u.s. involved to present this massacre. >> gadhafi's gone. he's been a big part of our life going back to the '60s, right? and now, is anybody in the world going to say the united states did the wrong thing by getting involved? >> i think the outcome is still too premature. no, they are not going to say that nato's involvement now was wrong. what's going to matter is how the u.s. takes it from here. what kind of soft power, what kind of engagement the u.s. maintains with the u.s. national council, with the people of libya. are they going to turn their back on them and let the situation descend as we've seen in afghanistan and elsewhere, or will they remain engaged and see this through until a democratic process is settled. >> let's talk about the morality of u.s. interests. americans don't like being killed, we certainly don't like our people being targeted, especially people in military uniform. this guy gadhafi, who died today, killed americans in a west berlin disco on purpose, right? he support
too. >> that'll do it for us this week. thanks for spending your time with us. iam dylan ratigan and "hardball's" up right now. >>> bye-bye, baghdad. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. leading off tonight, out of iraq. barack obama's campaign for president began with his opposition to the war in iraq. well, today, without the embellishment of a self-serving mission accomplished banner, president obama announced all american troops will be out of iraq by the end of the year. >> after nearly nine years, america's war in iraq will be over. >> wow. well, the president made the announcement one day after the killing of moammar gadhafi. that strengthened his bona fides on foreign policy and allowed him to say to the republicans, essentially, go ahead, try to oppose me on this one. plus, castro convertible. maybe we now know why senator marco rubio keeps insisting he's not a candidate for vice president. rubio has dined off the story that his parents fled fidel castro's cuba. now we learn they fled batista's cuba, years before castro took power. r
-gay ministry joins us to say, i am what i am. and the occupy wall street demonstrations have energy, momentum and enthusiasm. they could build and play a big role in the presidential election, but what do they want? and what does victory look like to them? we'll talk to a couple of the leading protesters. and why are republicans like john mccain so upset that president obama is, quote, campaigning for his jobs plan? could it be just because more and more people support the president on this one? and let me finish tonight with the missiles of october, what happened almost a half century ago. >>> let's begin with the big question facing herman cain. is he serious? steve schmidt's a former senior strategist for senator mccain's 2008 campaign. in fact, he was the campaign manager. and dana milbank's "the washington post" columnist. steve, you know the business. does this fella look like he's in the business of running for president, herman cain? is that his business? or is it something else? >> well, i've said throughout the campaign, chris, that on any given day, it resembles more of a reality s
liberty. they're trying to dim your light. there are those of us that keep letting it shine and want it to shine for another 125 years. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton, "hardball" starts right now. >>> flipping out. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews down in washington. leading off tonight, mitt flips again. mitt romney is becoming a parody of himself. just three days ago, he said he had no position on an anti-union measure out in ohio and then lurched into reverse the next day, saying, why, of course he was 110% behind the issue. well, if romney's serial flip-flopping has embarrassed him, he isn't showing it. romney's now disavowing his long-held position that the earth is getting warmer and that humans are partly to blame. he now says, quote, we don't know what's causing climate change. and he says, we should not try to reduce carbon emissions. seriously, can you believe anything this guy says? does he even he believe what he says? >> plus, could newt gingrich become the first openly mean president? that's the clever question posed by our own david cor
to the u.s. back in '56 a couple years before castro, but they applied to live her permanently. they weren't just visiting and wanting to go back home. finally, how many positions can mitt romney have on one issue, you guess and you'll have to still keep counting. we're going to go to the videotape in "the sideshow" to keep up with the count. and for the possibility for the first time in months, months, president obama may have the wind at his back. ed rendell is a two-term governor of pennsylvania and steve schmidt was a somewhat less successful strategist of the mccain campaign, both msnbc political analysts. ed is smiling, steve is not. >> "new york times"/cbs news, 46% approve and 46% approve. president obama's approval if you add up the changes, it's a seven-point up tick. president obama's approval numbers are far better than congress, i'd say. the approval now for congress is 9% positive. that's 1 in 11 and disapproval, 84%. nobody but far right people seem to like the congress. let me go to governor rendell. it seems like the president has found a sparring partner, the villain he l
how much profits american companies make? >> now, that's the kind of tough questioning i'm not used to. somebody called me from wall street, actually a guy who represents me out there, he's a republican, i think, and he said, look, i've never seen the press turn on the president like this. do you think they were tough questions today? >> yes, they were very tough. they were basically, when did you stop beating your wife-type questions, in the sense, is it true that people aren't listening to you anymore? >> by the way, answer your question -- >> and here is the bellwether for this. when the president's approval rating gets below 40%, the press, like the public, starts to have -- starts to reflect -- the press follows the opinion polls. not consciously, but unconsciously, it does. and there's skepticism now in the country is very high, and very high in the press corps too. >> for a person rooting for president obama, today is a good day. he's out there meeting the press. he gave the longest answers in recorded history, seriously, to these questions. there were like seven or eight questi
birmingham when a church was bombed to give us that right. you can try to turn back the clock. but some of us are not going to let you turn back time. we're going to stop voter sprepgs suppression. thank for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> rick perry goes birther. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews out in phoenix, arizona. leading off tonight, birtherism reborn. in the last few weeks, rick perry has dropped to single digits in the polls after enjoying a double-digit lead. so how did he boost your approval ratings when every debate sends you further in the dumps? you dig up an old, moldy, discredited charge that still has resonance with the right wing, birtherism. rick perry says it's not definitive that barack obama was born here in the u.s. rick perry and birtherism, the last vestige of a desperate candidate who hopes to survive. vesti that tops our show tonight. >>> also, which republican presidential candidate back in 1996 called the flat tax, quote, a tax cut for fat cats? and which republican presidential candidate now
be used nationwide. now he says his plan wouldn't work across the country. that's fairly fundamental. in '94, he promised to be more pro-gay rights than senator ted kennedy, and now says marriage between a man and woman is the only way it goes. i'm sorry. i think we're friendly saying it's just a flip-flop. he seems to take dramatic turns of opinion and belief on major issues. >> on abortion, he admits that he did that. he's not the only person to ever do that in public life. the elder president bush did the very same thing. other people have done it. on those other two issues, i think there's a little more nuance. for instance, on the gay rights thing, when he said he would be better for gay rights than ted kennedy, his argument was, as a republican, i can get more done as a democrat. there's nuance to most of these. but i agree with you, on something like abortion, the fundamental change is so big, he hasn't explained -- >> let me -- >> if that -- >> let me -- let me the turn it on you, here, mark, because you are an analyst, not an opinion guy. would you -- when you write your nex
